A submarine launched Trident missile rises over Death Valley at Badwater, with the Milky Way in the background. Yes Badwater is flooded but not deep enough for a sub, the launch was from off the coast. It was quite a surprise to look up and see the sky lit like this!

This is a great read for all the photographers out there looking to reliably backup their work. I've been using Amazon Glacier to back up my stuff for about a year now and its easy and low cost for the peace of mind it provides.

Don’t be an Idiot – Back it Up! It’s just plain stupid if you aren’t backing up your photos. I don’t mean just putting them on a hard-drive and calling it good. The number of photos we take each day is staggering… in fact it’s estimated that over 1 trillion photos will be taken this year. We take ph…

You've taken a stunning image and now what? There's still that massive and confusing program called Photoshop to navigate in order to make your amazing photo sing. My friend Joshua Cripps Photography just launched a series of video tutorials and they are great.

I took one of Josh's post processing classes years ago when I was first starting out and it helped me immensely, he has a soft touch to editing that still allows the image to seem "real" while bringing out its full potential. You can check it out here! https://www.joshuacripps.com/…/photoshop-basics-landscape…/…

Adobe Photoshop is a hugely powerful program for image editing. This video tutorial goes through basic Photoshop techniques to produce striking images.

Hiking through Anzo-Borrego came across a group of three Bighorn Sheep...and kicked myself for only having my wide angle lens with me. So as quickly as possible and ran the mile to the car and back returning with the longer glass. They were very well behaved sheep though and kindly stuck around and even posed nicely as a group!
